GoL Debunks Supporting in Cote D’Ivoire

President George Weah

The Government of Liberia has announced that it has no part to play in acts of violence taking place in neighboring Cote D’Ivoire in the wake of Saturday’s Polls.

The situation has already led thousands of Ivoirians to seek refuge in Liberia and other neighboring countries, evoking memories of the 2010 electoral violence in that country.

In a press release, the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism said that, “Liberia wishes to remind all Ivoirians of the consequences of resorting to violence as a means of resolving their differences.”

The release added: “The Liberian Government says it firmly backs regional and international efforts aimed at finding a lasting solution to the political situation​​ and will do nothing to undermine the security of a friendly neighbor – as has been insinuated on social media.”

The Liberian leader, President Dr. George M. Weah, reminds detractors who wish to use the situation in Cote D’Ivoire to score political capital at the expense of Liberia, that he has cordial relations with all the major Ivorian political actors – including the opposition and ruling party. He said Liberia has absolutely no involvement in the political affairs of Cote D’Ivoire.

The President said he strongly detests any suggestion which runs contrary to Liberia’s sole desire of having peace in the region.  He said lessons from our recent history has taught us enough that no country in the Mano River Basin is safe when another is engulfed with conflict.

  1. Mr. President,

    With all due respect, you are involved in the Ivorian situation to the core.
    Your advisor and business partner, Ousmane BAH, was arrested in a column of 8 vehicles with heavily armed Liberians entering Yamoussoukro.
    They are currently held in a private location. You will be confronted in due time.

    Please, stop putting the lives of Liberians at risk in this country. Limit your hooliganism within the frontiers of Liberia. Stop another diplomatic incident for Liberia!

  2. Mr. Defender,
    Did the captured Liberians admit that they were mercenaries? Also, have you investigated whether Bah was not set up by the opposition?

    You or no one should misconstrue me. I’m not supportive of anyone undermining any government internally or internationally. I deal with facts!

    You haven’t been able to explain why the current president of the Ivory coast has refused to step down as the nation’s Constitution calls for.
    The first president…..33 years in power. It’s coming again.

    American News:
    As of today, there will be no more “X days left”! Today is D-Day mon frere. The American people are poised to send your conservative buddy packing. He must go.

    Under his watch, over 230,000 Americans have lost their lives to Covid-19. At the same time, thousands of Americans are being infected on a daily basis. Yet, Trump has no viable plan to confront the pandemic.

    Given all that’s happening under his leadership, do you think Trump should continue to serve as president? The answer to my question will appear on the wall tonight.

    Mr. Petarus Dolo, your accusation of President Weah being involved in the Ivorian election is nothing but be seen as a grain of salt. If your ideal is correct to yourself, the people of Columbia, Cuba and DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), and many other nations in Latin America should accuse Chile for the action of Che Guevara, the famous leftist mercenary who was very active in the sixties. Better yet, Sierra Leone should also accused the South African Government for the action of Executive Outcome, the mercenary movement from Pretoria, South Africa that was hired to fight against the RUF.

    We have to be very careful how we go about accursing government involvement in neighboring conflicts. Don’t get me wrong, I m not supporting any subversive action against any regime. I condemn, in the strongest term, of Liberian Government involvement or exporting violence in any other country. Liberians may be seen in Ivory Coast causing problems. Do we know under whose leadership or command are they operating?

    Your dislike for the regime should not drive wedge between the people of Ivory Coast and Liberia, Sir. The people of Liberia have seen too much, especially our generation. Maybe your generation were fortunate, we were the children of the WAR (1989 -2003).. Some of were just fortunate to get out and still learning how to read better to go back and built Liberia..

    As always, may God bless the poor tax payers of Liberia, they are my heroes. It is through their efforts I m able to draft these few lines of reasoning. .

    Fellow Liberians, let’s be very careful. Let’s read between the line with cares.
